Gothic Arches - For the Birds


As you all know, I have a soft spot for birds, even ones that get into trouble. They also appear in my artwork frequently. I was inspired by the gorgeous images from Divas D'Este. I used beeswax on scrapbook paper for the background and then covered it with printed acetate. The wonderful rusted vine is from PaperWhimsy. If you haven't checked out the PaperWhimsy site recently, it has a new look! This is my submission for Gothic Arches this week with the theme "For the Birds".
